The South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum (SYAM) is a Volunteer led museum located at Lakeside in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England. It occupies the former site of the Royal Air Force Station, RAF Doncaster. The museum occupies the last remaining original buildings from RAF Doncaster in the shape of a Bellman hangar, two wooden 'Billet Huts' (Buildings 19 and 21) and various smaller structures. The Museum have also erected an Air Training Corps Cadet Hut alongside Building 21 to house its World War Two Collection.

The museum is also home to the Yorkshire Helicopter Preservation Group (YHPG) who relocated from the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington, near York in July 2002.

  • Great collection of exhibits and such volume.So much information for each artifact. I’ve been to a few of these types of places especially abroad and this is one of the best.

  • Would recommend this for all ages! Great for a family day out, and prices very reasonable. So much information to take in and amazing aircraft! Things to interact with, cockpits to sit in and a little simulator too! This place is so interesting and has the friendliest staff on entry and around the museum. The gift shop has great products and model aircraft for cheap prices!
  • Really great afternoon out. Lots to see and read about. Large part dedicated about the Falklands war.. very well set up would recommend if you are looking for a few hours out. You can get a hot drink and cake as well...
